Top 5 Wednesday: Forgettable Books

Hey guys! So like an idiot I read the list of topics for January in a rush and accidentally ended up posting the topic for the 17th on the 10th! I thought ‘Forgettable Books’ was this week but it was actually ‘Books You Didn’t Get to In 2017’! Sorry for the mix up and enjoy my picks for ‘Forgettable Books’ a week early, I guess!

**

I was actually really excited to get to this topic because it seems like such an interesting one. I’m really excited to see what books people find forgettable and if we share any! I’m just revisiting old favourites and realising they are no longer my favourites because I can’t remember nothing about them. I don’t have a clue what happened with regards to plot and characters, even though they are 300-400 pages. So they have made my list for forgettable books! Enjoy!

insurgent1) Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Quite an old book now but I’m being completely honest with you all when I say I have absolutely no idea what happened in this book or what it was about. I have read this book twice and I just have no clue what happened. I can’t remember anything about it. I really hope no one asks me what this book is about because I wouldn’t have a clue what to tell them. Even the first book, I have a vague idea of what happens but I can’t remember it fully. So this series is just very forgetful for me. I mean I loved the books when I read them but obviously the writing isn’t that memorable if I can’t remember anything about the plot or the characters.

Top 5 Wednesday: Books from Before You Joined Blogs/Bookstagram

Hey guys! I was honestly so excited when I saw this topic for Top 5 Wednesday! I have found so many fantastic books through the blogging community and bookstagram. I have so many favourite authors that I discovered from seeing their books getting amazing reviews or pictures being all over my Instagram feed. I rave about them all the time on my blog and my bookstgram but I forget to give my old favourites some love. So, without further ado, I am now going to give some much deserved love to my old favourites! Enjoy!

1) The Immortals by Alyson Noël

I freaking love these books! I’d never heard anything about them when I first picked them up because I wasn’t using bookstagram yet. I bought them purely for the covers because they really drew me in and made me want to read the books. I really loved them! The plot is really interesting because the main character can see people’s auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone’s entire life story by touching them. I was hooked throughout and devoured all six books in about a week. I loved the writing, the story, and the characters. Everything about these books was perfect for me. I feel like they’re really underrated and they definitely deserve more love! I highly recommend them for anyone who loves fantasy or paranormal books like me!

Top 5 Wednesday: Series That Got Worse with Each Book/Season

Hey guys! Hope you have all had a great week so far! The topic this week is open up to TV shows as well. You can choose any book series or TV show that you thought started out strong but then got increasingly worse with each book/season. I would advise you to prepare yourselves for some serious rants but also a little love because even though these books make me angry, I do have a soft spot for them too.

Please do not be offended by any of my choices, this is just my personal opinion. Just because I have included these books/TV shows on my list does not mean that they are awful and that I wouldn’t recommend them. Just because I do not enjoy these particular ones does not mean someone else won’t.

Fallen by Lauren Kate (Book series)

Not going to lie, I immediately thought of these books when I saw this topic. Fallen started out so strong, it was such an intriguing idea for a book. It drew me in immediately and I really loved all the characters and I was caught up with Daniel like Luce was… I was constantly wondering why he was so familiar to her and if they had met before. But then book two and three and four happened and I completely lost it. The writing was terrible, Luce was a horrible main character, she constantly complained and blamed Daniel for everything, if I remember correctly. I honestly don’t know how he put up with her, I was so done with her and gave him so much credit for still loving her. The only redeeming quality about these books is the freaking covers because they are so gorgeous! I absolutely love the first two covers. They are pretty much what made me pick these books up!

My Dream Book Conference

Hey guys! This is a little different to what I normally post but I thought it would make a nice change and I had a lot of fun writing it! If you’d like to use a resource to plan and find conferences in your local area, I’d suggest checking out Eventbrite and using their conference management page as a way to plan and find conferences in your local area!

I thought this post was a really interesting idea and I have decided to divide this post into some of my favourite genres and for each genre I have picked two authors I’d love to hear talk about these genres and their books. I hope you enjoy it!

Urban Fantasy

One of the most interesting genres for me has to be Urban Fantasy. It amazes me how an author is able to take a real place and create a whole other world inside it. It’s so interesting how they can incorporate fantasy and supernatural creatures and have them living alongside society without people ever realising it. It’s such an awesome idea and definitely takes a lot of patience and creativity.

Top 5 Wednesday: Characters You Used to Love but Don’t Anymore

Hey guys! This week’s topic is characters you used to love but don’t anymore! You either outgrew them or your outlook changed and now you can’t stand them. Maybe you don’t even hate them, you just are neutral about them when you used to run a fan blog about them. This group was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey) and is hosted by Sam (ThoughtsOnTomes). If you want to participate, check out the link on Goodreads here.

This topic is so interesting and I had to think real hard about it but I came up with some characters. I’d be interested to know if you guys share the same characters as me!

fallen1)  Lucinda Price (Fallen by Lauren Kate)

I really liked Luce when I first started reading the Fallen series. But… when I got to the second or third book I found myself disliking her more and more. She just became really annoying and brought every book down. I liked all the other characters it was just Luce I really started to hate which is annoying since she is the main freaking character! I really can’t remember how or why I finished these books since I disliked Luce so much… I guess I just really needed to know how it was all going to end?
